Enjoyed our first meal in Kardamili here and were warmly welcomed at gone 9.00pm. I enjoyed 3 fried red mullet with fries and my partner ordered beef burgers but received a steak which he accepted. Not sure if we were charged for it or not, but ut wasn't much more anyway and was delicious apparently. The bread and olive oil... More

My wife and I made the right choice in celebrating her birthday at Harilaos. Besides the soporific setting by the sea, the food was fresh and tasty. Our waiter was outstanding. We treated ourselves to a fresh locally caught fish called Dentex and had it grilled. Excellent! We were fortunate that we had not come the day before when the... More

Arrived here for dinner, we're the only two in, service was great spike great English, explained menu, gave specials. Salad was delicious, the moussaka was delicious and the chickpea and Spinach was also so beautiful. Both were the specials. Other tables had started to fill up now. But still you could tell even when he was tending to one table... More

We ate twice at Harilaos during our recent visit to Kardamyli (mostly because things were pretty closed up for winter and there wasn't much else open) and it was very good on both occasions. They were very accommodating for our 2 year old and the food and wine were quite yummy. A typical taverna menu with great prices.

Tzatziki and grilled cheese fir starters. Ok, but nothing more.. Than i had grilled lobster. It was plain and simple, without any extra. Tasted fine, but at that price i expected something more to it. My husband had grilled beef, and i was served with some chips and tomato slices. No sauce, witch made it a pretty boring experience. For... More

We have decided that Harilaos is the best for us after trying four other restaurants in Kardamyli this week. The location overlooking the harbour with a great view of the sunset is idyllic, the service is spot -on and the food very well cooked, of high quality and plenty of variety. Prices are good also. Congratulations to the wait staff,... More

Went here for lunch. We were the only people there to start with which was a bit worrying, but it was No. 1 on TA so thought we would try it. I'm a great lover of squid and we ordered the grilled and the fried but couldn't eat it as it was so tough and chewy I had to spit... More

Well, we read the reviews and decided we had to come. Fish seemed to be the recommended fare and so that was what we went with. We took our seats and marvelled at the view as the sun set over the bay. The thing about sea views is that when it gets dark there is nothing to sea, unless there... More

This wss followed by an excellent grilled fresh fish. Despite its modern look, i can recommend this taverna, for its local dishes, and excellent fish - im dissapointed we didnt get a chance... More

Best fish dinner we have ever had and we weren't born yesterday and my husband is from Florida. The most beautiful view and the most charming service. Absolutely lovely.
